University of Victoria

Supporting youth innovation and entrepreneurship on Vancouver Island.

We’ve partnered with the University of Victoria in launching the Coast Capital Savings Innovation Centre (CCSIC), an entrepreneurship incubator designed to help students, alumni and faculty launch their innovative business ideas.

How we help.

Coast Capital supports innovation and entrepreneurship as part of our Youth Community Investment program. We are thrilled to strengthen the University of Victoria’s ability to encourage and support entrepreneurship among its students, alumni and faculty.

This partnership recognizes that young entrepreneurs are not only at the front edge of innovation, but their business success will ultimately result in job creation, economic growth and more financial well-being for all of us.

How you can help.

If you have a great business idea and are interested in this program, contact the Coast Capital Savings Innovation Centre. The Centre is open to University of Victoria students, staff, faculty and recent alumni. Entrepreneurial ventures can be in any industry or government sector, high tech, social, commercial or non-profit.

We're a proud partner.

We launched this partnership in May 2016 with a contribution of $450,000. We’re excited to see how young entrepreneurs will thrive and follow their business dreams to success through their participation in the Centre.

Send us an email and we'll be happy to help you.
